Foster + Partners has been ranked number one in the annual 2009 Sunday Times Deloitte Buyout Track 100, with the fastest growing profits of a private equity backed firm. The list, which is run by Fast Track and published by The Sunday Times, compares profit growth over the last three years of private equity backed business.
Mouzhan Majidi, chief executive, said: “This is a real testament to the ongoing strength of our brand and the successful development of our projects abroad – 80% of our business is now overseas. The past two years have also seen us working in a number of new markets, including South America and India, as well as winning a record number of competitions and awards. It is a timely moment to have our financial performance and the investment of 3i recognised in this way.”
